We travel the world and try local joints often. This is nothing fancy, but great quality food, friendly service, and reasonably priced for Midwest cooking. Not for you if looking for fancy or variety, just plain good American food. Nice salad bar, great drink prices, friendly owners.

The restaraunt seemed very dated. The food was adequate but was overly priced. The reviews were misleading and I wished we had chosen differently. Still looking for a place worth stopping for when we are in this area.

This restaurant is a bit difficult to get to since it is located on an intersection of two major highways. Our GPS would have made us stop on the highway.
